2020 PROJECT OF THE YEAR

Rotary Amphitheater

CTCC’s 2020 Project of the Year is a local favorite, Community Park’s Rotary Amphitheater. This stage has welcomed hundreds of performers and thousands of fans over its 17-year existence, and it has taken a toll on the facility. Essential for Community Days, free park events and concerts, and event rentals, we knew we had to restore the facility to its full glory.

Improvements will mainly focus on the stage and surrounding structure, with upgrades to the nearby grounds. By extending the stage and enhancing the roofline, the completed project will attract bigger and better performers. Fundraising for this $300,000 project is ongoing, with construction groundbreaking expected for late July 2020.

UPDATED JULY 13, 2020: The amphitheater project is set to begin.
The sound of music will be replaced by the sounds of hammers, saws and heavy machinery, as the Rotary Amphitheater expansion project is set to get underway.
The Township Board of Supervisors approved contracts for general and electrical construction during a special morning meeting July 13.
Freedom Enterprises & Associates will perform general construction, while Independent Mechanical will handle electrical work.
Work will begin soon and is expected to be completed before winter.

 

PAST PROJECTS OF THE YEAR

 

2019 FORGE AHEAD LIBRARY MAKEOVER

CTCC is partnering with the Cranberry Public Library and Cranberry Township to bring you the the 2019 Project of the Year. A $1.125 million undertaking, the library renovation will address the most significant short-comings of the current facility – poor ADA accessibility, lack of energy efficiency, and an outdated arrangement for today’s users. There are four components to this renovation:


1. Makerspace: Makerspaces have become all the rage in America’s schools over the past decade. Think of them as small workshops, outfitted with tools ranging from very high tech to no tech at all. What they share in common are work benches designed for collaboration and equipped for making things in a hands-on learning environment.

 

2. Handicap Accessibility: Upgrades include new automatic entrance doors, the addition of a handicapped accessible checkout point at the circulation desk, and accessible workstations, tables, and equipment within the makerspace.

3. New Carpeting: The installation of new carpeting will enhance safety, avoid health problems associated with older carpet, and complement the overall aesthetics of the facility.

4. LED Lighting: New LED lights throughout the library results in significant energy savings. In addition, LED fixtures provide directional lighting that highlight specific objects without emitting UV radiation that can damage delicate materials (like paper).


Stay tuned for exciting details regarding the grand opening.
